Angry Birds Go, the upcoming kart racing installment in Rovio Entertainment's bird and pig-focused franchise, will get Jenga and Telepods tie-ins, according to an announcement from Hasbro today.

According to product packaging found at Toys R Us' website (see below), Angry Birds Go is set to launch Oct. 31. A representative from Rovio declined to confirm the date but said that a "full reveal will be coming very soon, in October."

Hasbro has given each of the products, which serve as real-world games and video game tie-ins, an approximate price and a fall 2013 release window.

The Pig Rock Raceway set will include two exclusive Angry Birds characters and retail for $29.99. The Deluxe Multi-Pack (above) will include "two pig-themed racing targets" and five Angry Birds characters, one of which is excessive to the $19.99 set. The $14.99 Dual Launcher set will include inclined tracks and targets and an exclusive kart, while the $9.99 Telepods Multi-Pack will come with two karts and the $4.99 Telepods Kart Pack will include a single racer.

Hasbro will also release four Jenga/Angry Birds Go mashups, ranging from $9.99 to $29.99. Each will include codes to unlock in-app content.

Rovio teased the kart racer in late August with a trailer. The developer has yet to release more information about the game, such as platform, price and release date.

Hasbro and Rovio also teamed up earlier this year to bring Telepods to the Angry Birds Star Wars franchise. For more on the real-world toy and video game mashup, check out Polygon's hands-on impressions of Angry Birds Star Wars 2.
